The Bruins announced that minor league goaltender Malcolm Subban had successful surgery to repair a fractured larynx.
While playing for the Bruins’ AHL affiliate Providence Bruins on Saturday, Subban was struck in the throat by a puck against the Portland Pirates. He was later transported to Massachusetts General Hospital for evaluation.
The Bruins issued a statement Thursday saying that Subban had successful surgery at Mass Eye & Ear Hospital and has been released from the hospital.
"While there is no definitive timetable for his return at this time, he is expected to be out a minimum of eight weeks," the team said in its statement.
Subban, the brother of star Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban, has a .911 save percentage and a 2.46 GAA in 27 games for the P-Bruins.
